This European bracelet has a great look with alternating yellow, light rose and white gold panels. Each panel contains 2 ribs with a light indent line between the ribs. Between the panels you find a bit deeper indent line that continues the ribbed effect of the design. The sturdy side rims of the bracelet are yellow gold. When you look at the patterned panels carefully you can see the subtle shading of the three colors of gold. It gives the bracelet a super look that is very tasteful not overly bright or gaudy. Across the top of the bracelet you will find that 3 of the white gold panels are single ribs that contain 8 diamonds in each panel for an approx. total of 36pts.
The gold is in excellent condition with no cracks, rips, dents, holes, nasty scratches, abrasions or repairs. The bracelet closes with a nice click and stays firmly closed. The hinge is all original with no repairs. There is an original figure 8 security catch that is in working order. The diamonds are all there and appear to be the originals. They are well matched with nice color and brightness.
The closure box has two marks one which is the 750 rectangle that is European for 18Kt. gold. The other is a long rectangle that could be the registration mark of an Italian goldsmith but is badly impressed and unreadable. The closure flange has a mark done in script that reads L.M. or I.M. The bracelet measures just a hair under 5/8" wide. The interior oval is 2 5/16" from hinge to closure and is 2" tall. I have a 6 3/4" wrist, can get it on and wear it, but it is a little too firm for my taste. We've weighed the bracelet and it is 49 grams of course with the diamonds intact. Three color gold jewelry has been done for well over 100 years but Rich gave the circa of 1970 due to the style and construction of the bracelet. A great bracelet that can be worn day or night.
